Our Product Development Process Improvement Capabilities
We help you improve your product development processes so you can improve your products. We do this by working with your key stakeholders by applying our Compass methodology, whereby we:
- Understand your desired, improved process requirements in the context of your business needs
- Determine your current processes and the gaps relative to what is desired
- Recommend process improvement projects to address the gaps
- Implement the projects for which you select us
- Assess the process value you obtain after the projects have been implemented
Product Development Process Assessment
We assess your product development processes and propose improvements so you can develop better products in less time and for less cost. Process improvements include best practice recommendations, technology training in the context of new/improved processes, technology transfer, workflow automation, outsourcing, and software delivery and implementation.
CAE/Simulation Process Assessment
We help you make improved use of your CAE/simulation capabilities in order to better verify that your products meet their requirements. We do so by assessing your CAE/simulation processes and recommending improvements, and we can also implement the recommended improvements. Typical CAE/simulation process improvements include training, task automation, improved design-analysis integration, and earlier analyses in your product development processes.
Workflow automation provides significant process time savings and increased task repeatability. We provide workflow automation by using the automation capabilities available in NX (CAD and CAM), Simcenter 3D, and Femap. We build and deliver these automation scripts and train your people on how to use these in order to increase their task throughput and repeatability.
Numerous issues hamper effective design-analysis integration. We work closely with your design and analysis teams to overcome these integration obstacles by understanding your design-to-analysis “handoff” process and proposing ways that it can be improved. Depending on your software toolset, we can also show you how to implement the improved process, along with creating workflow automation to further streamline the process, and train you in the usage.
Up-Front Design Verification
We assist your team in developing and implementing “up-front” design verification processes that are run by your design engineers. This gives your designers immediate feedback on their design, which increases design confidence and enables rapid design changes. As an added benefit, such design-run up-front analyses help ensure that the design geometry is “analysis ready” for your analysts’ use.
People are your most valuable resources. Saratech helps boost your teams' productivity by offering practical training on the latest Siemens DISW software. Whether getting a new engineer up-to-speed on NX CAD or teaching new skills to an existing Femap user, trust Saratech to deliver the right training to meet your needs. Our online, instructor-led training system allows effective delivery without geographic limitations.
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
We help you evaluate and identify areas in your product development process where MBSE can make the most impact. From there, we will provide a roadmap to implementation using our Compass Methodology. With model-based systems engineering, your company can speed up product development with fewer errors and delays. MBSE provides a competitive advantage for companies developing complex products.
